This is going on my sister's porch swing - it'll have ties with velcro to attach it to the frame, above the existing seat.

Chilling on my coffee table (the seat cushion is the EXACT size of the table..)



Set up in the window for demo:

The cat has already claimed it as her new favorite nap spot.  She's going to be very disappointed when I take it away...

Good work!  I like the matching back piece.  We are in the process of buying a house with a porch swing, and this is great inspiration for a summer project.

Thanks!

I'm looking into making some porch swing cushions right now and I don't know what fabric to use.  The stuff you used looks like the water resistant sort...where did you get it?  You did a great job btw!

I used outdoor canvas that I got a Joann.  I think it's treated with something to make it a little more weather resistant, but it will breathe and such, I believe.
